So You Think You Can Scrap!


I did most of this layout during commercials of Wednesday's episode of "So You Think You Can Dance". It was quite the challenge, and I almost finished the whole page, but it needed some fine-tuning and I didn't actually get it done until this morning. (Incidentally, I'm kind of disappointed with the show this season. It's kind of got that "been-there-done-that" feel to it, and I'm missing that wacky Mary!) The colours over at Design Dollies are baby pink, black, and red this week, and the Stampin' Royalty challenge was to use stencils (finally am going to enter one of their challenges, yay!) so I combined the two to make this page of my 16th birthday dinner. I got to play with one of my new Glimmer Screens, a new stamp set (Little Princess), and some Perfect Pearls, so I had a lot of fun making it. I kept the journaling simple by just stamping some phrases, because this was over half my life ago, and I don't really remember it all that well. I used to keep a diary at that age, but I think I got rid of it - too much embarassment if anyone ever cracked that open! Aren't the pictures bad enough?

Supplies (all CTMH): White Daisy cardstock, patterned paper from More to Adore Level 2 paper pack, Exclusive Inks stamp pads in Blush and Black, Exclusive Inks marker in Tulip, Clear Detail embossing powder, Be Yourself, Classmate Alphabet, Picture Perfect, Little Princess, and Reminisce My Acrylix stamp sets, pewter mini brads

Other: Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Screen, Ranger Perfect Pearls, unknown ribbon

P.S. this is layout #45 of 120 for the year!
